Bridge House and Grace House programs supporting recovery from drug and alcohol addiction will benefit from the Cochon Cotillion, which will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, April 18, at Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World, 1350 Port of New Orleans Place, New Orleans.

Attire for the Krewe of Pork and Beads event is costume or tacky de rigueur. Guests will pig out with food provided by some of New Orleans’ finest restaurants and food outlets, including Gordon Biersch, Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar, Southern Candymakers, Bayou Hot Wings, Koz’s Restaurant and Bridge House’s own kitchen.

In addition, they will experience the musical mastery of ELS and the smooth sounds of Mike Morris, an indoor parade, an open bar and squeals of deals at a silent auction.

Individual tickets for the Cochon Cotillion are $100. For information, call (504) 821-7288 or visit
